Abstract : Topics include: optical and electrical properties of lead salts under pressure; electrical properties of gray tin as a function of pressure and band structure studies of HgSe and HgTe; effect of pressure on the properties of intermetallic crystals; spin resonance measurements on semiconductors; investigation of the properties of the transition metal oxides; construction and application of a new ratio type spectrometer for the measurement of small increments in absorption coefficients; investigation of the semiconducting properties of forsterite; investigation of the Faraday rotation in semiconductors; investigation of the optical properties of Ge, PbS, CdTe, and HgTe thin films; the effect of pressure on the spontaneous and stimulated radiative recombination spectrum of intermetallic compounds.
